Designing a Defense for Mobile Applications

Seeing everybody else has been doing the Enron auction and all the shredder jokes we weren't going to bother, but our eye couldn't help catching the featured items in the London sale, and it all became somehow entrancing. The shredders, BBC Radio 4 tells us this morning, have been withdrawn, but...

50 Cisco routers and switches? Who cares, 500 Compaq and Sun servers, maybe more interesting, and 4,000 15 and 18in flat panel displays. Yum. We can't be bothered digging into the catalogue to see if the 2,000 workstations are proper ones or just more Compaqs, but then the list gets seriously weird.

"Fully equipped Techno Gym... Contents of Cafe and 12 Pitstops... [Pitstops? Wassat?]... Contents of laundy [eeugh]... 15 Meeting Rooms 6-40 people [people? They're auctioning people?] ... 50 Modern Artworks."

Hurry hurry folks, it commences at 10am GMT today through Friday, and if you can't get yourself to London, SW1, you'll find details of the webcast here. ®
